Don Bosco pushed the envelope with innovation when it first opened, combining a school to train students in hospitality management with the ownership of various hotels that develop funding for Cambodia’s burgeoning tourism sector.
Now, Don Bosco’s at it again with it’s recently opened student-run restaurant, the Kiosk.
The Kiosk is located at No 67 – 69 Road 315, Sangkat Boeung Kak II, Khan Toul Kork, Phnom Penh, next to Don Bosco. Staffed by friendly and skilled hospitality students, the Kiosk serves an array of food from different nationalities, including Italian and Asian, for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
The Kiosk also serves delicious homemade Italian ice and fresh coffee, juices, shakes and cocktails.
Chomno Reasmey, one of the restaurant’s owners, said, “Our restaurant’s special points are the ice cream, food, staff, and furniture.”
The ice cream, she added, is made from natural fruits sourced locally. The stunning furniture is a collection of artistic masterpieces made by Don Bosco alumni.
Chomno Reasmey added that the Kiosk envisions a space where young Cambodians can come and put academic theory into practise, whether it’s learning how to serve in the hospitality industry or contributing a piece to the space.
All profits from the Kiosk go directly to Don Bosco.
The restaurant’s motto, aptly, is: “By being our guest, you support free education for Cambodian youth indeed.”
Don Bosco has many international branches and opened in Phnom Penh back in 1991 to help underprivileged students find a sound education. Don Bosco is known for helping students receive an education regardless of financial problems and providing accessible school equipment for all.
